How can you not love Shibui yarns? They give you endless options for mixing fibers and colors. I knew I needed a special yarn to really make the leaf design and texture pop. The center section is worked with Twig held with Lunar and the sides are Twig held with Cima. I’ve wanted to use Twig in the new Bone colorway since it’s debut. The happy accident was the shop was out of Lunar in Bone, so I chose the next color on the spectrum: Ash. This gives the center section a subtle, silvery difference in color. I think this difference showcases the change in texture between the two sections.
